MINIMIZING PLASTIC WASTE

For some time now The Sands at Nomad has not had any plastic water bottles used throughout the hotel or restaurant.

Guests coming for a meal or to stay can order water in a 1 liter or 1/2 liter Carafe (Jug), these carafes are filled from a 20 liter refillable mineral water dispenser.

Glass refillable bottles, carafes and even recycled water glasses.

Should guests prefer to drink from a bottle The Sands also provided refillable glass mineral water bottles which are also nice to keep and refill as one can.

Small decisions can have a large impact.     Say no to plastic.

Mineral water comes in 20L for dispensers to carafes or 1Liter glass bottles
